VIDEOGAME REVIEW: In Pittsburgh, Chuck Finder wrote 2K Sports’ “Major League Baseball 2K7” is a “good-looking game and an easier one to play” than Sony’s “MLB ‘07 The Show.” In the former, PNC Park “looks especially crisp and clean, with a lovely skyline in the background, even though the ad space behind home plate shills only for this video game’s sponsors.” The players’ faces “aren’t so sharp,” but ESPN’s Jon Miller and Joe Morgan “provide their fine brand of broadcasting.” Sony’s game “doesn’t do considerable justice” to PNC Park. It is a “mite slow to load and confounding in its game play” (PITT. POST-GAZETTE, 4/19).
